Savings Through Week 13

I hope that I can continue to keep up with the savings and right now I've put in $204.00.  At week 18  if I followed the schedule I would be at $171.00.  Still trying to put extra in for all those heavy weeks ahead.  I still think this is a fun way to save. 

Check out the Giveaway that I'm doing!!

Quilts in the Pumpkin Patch Blog Hop

I know that I'm late getting this up and I hope everyone will forgive me!!!  The last month has just been crazy.  I don't travel very much and that's all I've been doing.  One more trip next week and I should be home for a while.

I started 5 count them - 5 projects when I was in Wisconsin and the classes were too short to finish anything so I still have those in bags that are not unpacked.  I loved all of the classes but feel so disappointed that I can't get back to them.

I want to thank Sheri for doing all of this work to put this Hop together and everyone else on the schedule.

Here is the schedule.

September 19th Sheri -- Sunshine in the Attic
September 20th Maggie -- Maggie's Empty Nest Days
September 21st Susie -- Susie's Sun Room
September 22nd Celine -- Espritpatch
September 23rd Yevette -- Evindie
September 24th Judy -- Judy's Fabric Addiction
September 25th Elaine -- Summercrafter
I made a Pile O' Pumpkins Wall hanging following the directions in Fons & Porter Quilting Celebrations Fall 2013.  The pattern is on page 21 and all of the patterns are in the magazine.  Our little Monday night quilting group did this a couple of weeks ago and it was a lot of fun.
This is the Wall hanging on my design wall and yes it needs to be finished.

 Here is the page and the magazine front with this wall hanging.  This magazine had a lot of cute Halloween items and I think my money was well spent on this magazine.  Sometimes there is only one thing you want and feel it's a waste of money!

Now for the Give Away!!  I'm going to give the first winner a yard of this fall fabric and the Fons & Porter Scissor Safety Sheath.
The second winner will receive a yard of this fabric. 
There will be other goodies for the winners!

Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall and that will be one entry.
Follow me and that will be another entry.
Make sure and let me know that you followed me so that I can get your entries correct.
Thanks for stopping by and I know the others put me to shame but maybe I can slow down soon and just sew!!!
